You also need to be aware of the true costs of owning the property. You need to know exactly what your monthly costs will be so that you can "compare apples to apples" when looking at several units. Your monthly costs will include your HOA fees, taxes & utilities. Your buyer agent can outline all of the costs for you so that you can make the best educated decision possible.
